Oh boy! I could give a bigger list, that way no one is left out who deserves to be there.

I would bet your list would include every single person you have had a conversation with. Just name the top 3.
1. Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh
2.Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh
3.Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh
4.Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh
5. Stefy

That is not correct. That guy is like a genius.

Pappym and Grandpappyd always told me to hang around with smarter people. That is one of the reasons why I am here.

The plant you were going to get. It was mentioned in noemi's thread "Under the fig tree...".

### Re: Annual Calculus Questions

I think the person you were talking about excluding is you. I have known you for a long time and I know about your modesty. I also know that you would be wrong in excluding yourself from that list and that Shivamcoder3013 is wrong in putting himself so for down the list.

### Re: Annual Calculus Questions

That is why I did not make the list. I have definite opinions who belongs where, even to my own position in the list.

Of course, posting such opinions will lead to endless debate and probably some hurt feelings.
